It’s the news Muggles the world over have been waiting for. Butterbeer ice cream is a thing, and just in time for summer too.

American Potter fans, you lucky lucky people. News reaches Culture Trip that Pennsylvania-based ice cream makers Yuenglings Ice Cream have announced that their new flavour for 2017 is butterbeer.

What does butterbeer ice cream taste like?

The flavour is described as a mix of half buttercream ice cream, half butterscotch ice cream, with a butterscotch swirl running through the mixture – so that’s heavy on the butterscotch, folks.

David Yuengling, President of Yuengling’s Ice Cream said in a recent press release: “We are always looking for ways to inspire our fans and spark creativity. Whether it’s our flavour names and descriptions or the recipes themselves – we’re in the business of having fun and we hope we made J.K. Rowling proud with this flavour.”

Butterbeer

Butterbeer was once described by J.K. Rowling in an interview with ‘Bon Appetit’ magazine as ‘a little bit like less sickly butterscotch’. It has a slight alcoholic content (apparently only house-elves can get drunk on butterbeer, but it doesn’t have that effect on humans) – so it’s basically the Panda shandy of the Wizarding World.
